    BBM For Android App Screen Shots Leaked

    Well, what do we have here? BBM for… Android? New leaked photos appear to show a beta version of BBM running on an unspecified (and clearly uncared for) Android device. The validity of these shots is questionable, as they were sent to T3 from an anonymous source and a leak of this kind would take about five minutes for a Photoshop noob to complete. However, they do add a little weight… Read More

  • Logitech Lands Six-Figure Fine From EPA For Misleading Ads

    Logitech Lands Six-Figure Fine From EPA For Misleading Ads

    Logitech is known for their keyboards and mice, and the company always seems to find new ways to make what should be boring old accessories interesting. The MX 3200 Laser keyboard and mouse are an awesome example, as Logitech said the combo pack was built using an AgION surface meant to disrupt the growth of bacterial cells. Not a bad idea at all, but the way that Logitech marketed the MX… Read More

None other than the infamous… Read More

    Samsung Taps Intel To Build A New Linux-Based Open Source Platform: Tizen

    It’s no secret (at least, not anymore) that Samsung is scrambling to diversify its mobile platform offerings. Bada, while smart, is kind of a bust, and Android is currently hanging in the balance until everyone figures out just what Googorola‘s plans are.

    Samsung And Microsoft Ink Deal For Cross-Licensing Patents, Developing Windows Phone

  • Hands-On With The Toshiba Thrive 7″ Tablet

    Hands-On With The Toshiba Thrive 7″ Tablet

    Toshiba’s entrance into the Android tablet market was a pretty good one — Android 3.1 Honeycomb, a wide array of connectivity ports, and interchangeable batteries.

Personally, I tend to favor the 7 to 8-inch tablet category, which is why I was so pleased to get a peek at Toshiba’s latest… Read More

    Toshiba Announces Updated Kid-Friendly Laptop

    If ever there was an audience for a silver and neon green laptop, kids would be it (and also maybe people who like lime green a lot). That said, Toshiba has just launched its updated kid-friendly laptop: the Satellite L735D. Toshiba and Best Buy worked on this one together, and did quite a bit of research to make sure that the little ones were getting what they wanted. Which was a lot of… Read More

    Sprint is clearly in a tough spot. It’s been a step behind in getting the iPhone which should be remedied soon, but the yellow carrier is also facing a mega-merger between AT&T and T-Mobile that would drop it way below the competition. The good news, however, is that it looks like Sprint has a plan, a piece of which involves the deployment of its 4G LTE network in early 2012. Read More

    Microsoft Files More Patents For Dual-Screen Swiss Army Knife Slider Phone

    I could swear that I’ve had a dream about this before, or at least written about it*, but it looks like Microsoft beat me to the patent office.

But for a handset with such an air of mystery, our latest leak has really spilled the beans. Read More

    HTC “Facebook Phone” Dumps Facebook For Chinese Market

    How do you sell the Facebook phone in a Facebook-free environment? Luckily for HTC, China isn’t short on homegrown social networks, one of the largest being the instant messaging service QQ. So as the HTC Status (once known as the ChaCha) migrates toward China, where our favorite social network has been banned, Facebook will be left behind to make room for a dedicated QQ button (pictured… Read More
